Sometimes when I am looking for something to write a blog about, I just scroll through Facebook and say I’ll write a blog about the first news item that everybody in the world hasn’t already written a blog about.
I just tried to do that but it didn’t work out so well. My entire feed is talk about either the American election, which isn’t until November and is a done deal anyway, as well as the most embarrassing clash in American history. No matter who wins, the American people for the next 4 years will have a right wing, pathologically dishonest, mentally incompetent old man with severe personal space issues as a president. Or, Covid-19, and all the comments are about how stupid people who refuse to wear a mask are.
Nobody’s talking about space exploration.
Nobody’s talking about AI.
Nobody’s talking about the therapeutic properties of LSD.
Nobody’s talking about the cool trips they are taking to exotic destinations because nobody’s doing that right now.
I’m seeing far fewer pictures of food (maybe that’s over now, and maybe that’s a good thing) and cats, and babies.

Because there is just so, so much ugly shit going on in the world. I wish I had more reason for optimism, but it does look as if things are going to get worse before they get better.
